It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
For some reason, the countdown I had said that I had until 7PM Pacific time. Perhaps this was due to daylight savings time or something like that, but I'm not sure, since I didn't write the code for it. Anyway, I came to my computer to submit with what I thought was a good 10 minutes to spare, and the countdown even said 10 minutes remaining (yes, my time zone is correctly set to Pacific time). I refreshed the page, and the recital had already been closed
Lesson learned: I should look at and note the deadline, not rely on the countdown timer.
Anyway, I figured even though unfortunately I can't be part of the official recital, I can still post the recording I made for it. Here it is, warts and all. All comments (especially with regards to audio quality; maybe I should PM wouter79) welcome
I'll even make it look like the official recital template, and I'll post the video at the end.

This is like watching the ballgame on TV instead of being there I love Thomas Newman and I loved (and still love) this movie. I hope you enjoy this. I'm dieting, so nothing interesting for lunch.
